‘Groovy stars' is about not letting your spark fade out because of obligations, age, and just the wear and tear of day-to-day life a.k.a. the grind. It's about finding your second wind and realizing that it's never too late to chase your dream. Burn bright baby and go out in a blaze of glory.
Government Slave is a tribute to the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Modern technology and government propaganda programs by self-described ‘Social Engineers’ manipulate people into acceptance of endless wars, expensive, ineffective Big Pharma drugs, unhealthy genetically-modified junk food, mainstream media BS and an obsession with Wall Street’s insanely overvalued speculative bubble casino.
Where Nashville meets Classic Rock! Influenced by iconic artists such as The Beatles, Tom Petty, Jars of Clay, and Christ Stapleton, this acoustic-driven, slide guitar reeling newbie with punchy 4-part harmony chorus vocals shares the story of a lonely 18 yr old girl raised in an orphanage and forced to face adult life on her own without hope in her world.
Chart a Course is the realization of needing a plan to pursue your goals. It’s the most positive vibe track on the album which continues the themes of life (ups/downs) from my last album. It’s also why I put this song so early in the album. Just because you have a plan and a goal doesn’t mean everything is figured out, but it’s definitely something to be hopeful for.
Jeff Rockker is a Paris based french-californian rock singer/guitarist/songwriter. He is the lucky recipient of an ASCAP “Popular Songwriter Award”. His style is influenced by the great hard rock bands of the 80’s (AC/DC, Kiss The Cult, Trust, etc...) but, their double drum kick, metal sounding guitars and often incisive words, give his songs a very modern edge!
